And you thought 2018 meant no more breakfast TV shake-ups....
For those of us still reeling from the Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkinson fiasco of '17, this new update will give you a sense of calm.
Allison Langdon and Peter Stefanovic have been announced as the new hosts of Weekend Today on the Nine network.
Channel Nine confirmed that the former 60 Minutes reporters are taking over the helm from former co-hosts Tom Steinfort and Deborah Knight.
A big round of applause of Allison and Pete.
The new faces of Weekend Today!
Allison, who was pipped to become Karl Stefanovic's side-kick before Georgie Gardener got the gig, says she's very excited to be working with his little brother.
"I'm really excited to be joining the Weekend Today team," the respected journalist said.
"Pete is a great mate and has been for many years. We both take our journalism very seriously but not ourselves. We have a lot of laughs together and I look forward to sharing that with our Today audience alongside Jayne, who is one of the best and hardest working journalists in the country," the mother-of-one added.
The experienced presenter will continue to file stories with 60 Minutes, making this new venture a "wonderful fit."
Deb and Tom will remain within the network
Meanwhile, Sylvia Jeffreys main man is stoked about the new gig.
"To be asked back to co-host Weekend Today is a privilege, and it definitely feels like I'm returning home. I've known Ally for more than ten years. She's a great journalist, smart and funny, and I look forward to working alongside her and Jayne," Pete said.
The network seems particularly chuffed with their decision, with Nine's director of news Darren Wick remarking, "What a team to wake up with every weekend. The dynamics and professionalism of Ally, Pete and Jayne guarantees a relaxed and warm start to your weekend, and I couldn't be happier."
We can't wait to see Pete in action.
Despite the big shuffle, Jayne Azzopardi will continue as the show's newsreader.
As previously reported, Deb Knight is leaving the weekend team after six years.
She's set to become the face of Nine News' 6pm bulletin in Sydney on Friday and Saturday, as well as being weekday host Peter Overton's new stand-in.
Meanwhile Tom Steinfort, who joined Today in 2017, is moving to a full time role with 60 Minutes.
As for your weekday Today team, as confirmed last year, Karl Stefanovic and Georgie Gardener will be team captain with Sylvia Jefferys as the show's newsreader.
Karl's former co-host Lisa Wilkinson will join Carrie Bickmore, Waleed Aly and Peter Helliar on Ten's The Project after Australia Day.
